Despite its age, one of the more well balanced AUD's you're gonna hear, Phil is well represented on this one.
I haven't listened to this one in while and have just started it up here at my desk so I cant go into a deep review of this one, but if nothing else the sound quality is very tasty and the Greatest Story is AMAZING and there is one of those early 70's half hour long Playin's that I love, especially when Phil is up front in the mix. Some have called these "self-indulgent", but I say it is what makes the Dead the Dead.
If nothing else, its a perfect way to kick off the weekend and make it seem less like a day at work.

For the SBD folks, this is a choice copy: http://www.archive.org/details/gd74-06-22.sbd.obv.30972.flacf

Sorry, didn't mean to leapfrog posts. My apologies.

Great choice! A very good show that is usually overshadowed by it's sister show the next evening in the same venue (famous for it's Dark Star>Spanish jam>U.S.Blues segment). Both circulate in fantastic Jerry Moore audience recordings.

June '74 is truly a monster month.

The China>Rider from 6/22 is real good, but overshadowed in my mind by the one they played four days later in Boston. Love the Eyes>Wharf though, and I really like how much Playin' had evolved by this point. Sounds like Miles almost.

Started off today with an AUD fragment from '69:


If I didn't know it were an AUD, I woulda mistook this for a SBD until hearing the vocals/audience banter. I usually have a hard time hearing TC even in SBDs from this era, but he's very clear in this mix. How aud. ;)

Anyway, the Other One suite swings nicely, sort of reminiscent to me of the one from 7/2/71--lots of energy but very smooth. It's a crying shame that the DS>SS>11>LL is lost to the wind. So it goes.
